Spring is starting and The Gov doing a bit of a clean out, giving away its hoard of posters, That Dapper market is back at the new Tuxedo Cat and there’s a celebration of SA’s best young musical talent. Here’s what’s on in Adelaide this weekend.

The Gov poster giveaway

Are you one of those die-hard fans who tries to steal the poster off the wall of the Gov on your way out only to get stumped by a particularly sticky piece of blu-tack (or security guard)? Well. This Saturday (12-3pm) your luck is changing, with The Gov set to giveaway its collection of posters for the first time since 2010. We hear there are posters of San Cisco, Rodriguez, The Rubens, The Butterfly Effect, Bluejuice and many more. But beware, some posters are in limited numbers.

Gawler Show

What's on ShowWhile kids dream of showbags at the Royal Adelaide Show next week, they don’t need to wait; the largest country show is on this weekend with enough fairy floss, handicrafts, preserves and poultry to sate every family. In its 157th year, the Gawler Show is well-known for its friendly environment and country atmosphere. It’s on Saturday and Sunday this weekend.

Curries and Other Thoughts

Details for Saturday’s class at the Adelaide South West Community Centre on Sturt Street are here. The rest of the week, which focuses on healthy living and eating using Lord Mayor Stephen Yarwood, who has recently lost 20 kilograms, as an example, includes crochet lessons, “how to book a holiday online” and a repurposed planter pot workshop.
